Los Angeles Facial Plastic Surgeon Details Benefits of Eyelid Rejuvenation
Glendale area facial plastic surgeon Dr. A. John Vartanian performs blepharoplasty to correct sagging skin and under eye bags in patients seeking facial rejuvenation.
Glendale, CA—Dr. A. John Vartanian, a facial plastic surgeon in Glendale, uses blepharoplasty, commonly known as eyelid rejuvenation or eyelid lift, to remove excess skin and fat around the upper and lower eyelids. Dr. Vartanian explains that patients experiencing puffy or drooping eyelids may request an eyelid lift to help restore a youthful appearance and produce a more well-rested, cheerful expression.
Excess skin and lax muscles around the eyes are symptoms typically attributed to aging; however, Dr. Vartanian says environmental and behavioral factors, such as excess sun exposure, genetic predisposition, smoking, and stress can also contribute to the appearance of under eye bags and heavy eyelids. Regardless of cause, he notes, sagging eyelids often create the appearance of advanced age, unhappiness, or tiredness, something many patients wish to amend.
In a recent blog post titled, “Discover the Benefits of Eyelid Rejuvenation,” Dr. Vartanian summarizes the advantages of undergoing blepharoplasty at his facial plastic surgery practice. Benefits of an eyelid lift include:
- Refreshed appearance
- Reduced puffiness
- Firmer eye area
- Reduced sagging
Blepharoplasty can treat many cosmetic concerns, Dr. Vartanian says, but fine lines, often referred to as crow’s feet, are not among them. The doctor typically recommends non-surgical dermal fillers to manage mild to moderate creases and eyelid rejuvenation for sagging, excess skin or pockets of fat around the eyes.
In a subsequent blog post titled, “Am I a Good Candidate for Eyelid Rejuvenation?,” Dr. Vartanian explains the anatomic requirements for patients requesting blepharoplasty, which include:
- Fat deposits on upper and/or lower eyelids
- Under eye bags
- Sagging or puffy skin
- Obstructed vision due to excess skin
During the consultation, Dr. Vartanian says he examines patients to determine overall health and discusses individual goals, emphasizing reasonable expectations.
Ultimately, Dr. Vartanian offers a number of cosmetic enhancement procedures, including blepharoplasty, to qualified candidates seeking to rejuvenate their appearance. Individuals who wish to restore a bright, welcoming countenance, he says, should first consider the eyes.
